There are 3 comments on the Multichannel News story from Jun 18, 2012, titled Dish vs. The Networks: From 'The Hopper' to Personalized TV. In it, Multichannel News reports that:

Dish Network chairman Charlie Ergen's comments in the June 8th edition of The Wall Street Journal captured a key point he has pushed for decades, even before EchoStar's unveiling of its Digital Video Recorder technology in the late 1990s: technology will continually challenge the big media players' notions of true change.

I read that article in the Wall Street Journal, and I have to agree. Technology has advanced to the point of being able to cater to us as individuals instead of just going for the broadest audience possible. Networks and advertisers are just going to have to become more creative, just as they were forced to do when they first learned about streaming shows online. I work at a Dish call-center, and it seems like all I do is talk about Auto-Hop. If anything, technology is only going to advance in this direction.

I donít understand why CBS, FOX, & NBC execs donít want us to enjoy commercial-free TV. Iím a DISH employee Ė AutoHop is great because you can easily watch commercial-free TV. Public Knowledge, a consumer advocacy group, is taking a stand for consumers by creating a petition that tells CBS, FOX, & NBC media to keep their hands out of your living room & DVR. Sign their petition to keep control of how you watch TV http://bit.ly/KFdn1Q
